The article reports on a study by John Robertson, director of the University of Virginia-Maryland Center for Comparative Oncology, on the use of frankincense oil as a possible treatment for malignant melanoma in horses, as he has presented at the American Cancer Society's meeting in Roanoke. Frankincense oil is a fragrant botanical oil distillate from fermented plants. It contains boswellic acid, which has anti-neoplastic properties. The oil also has anti-inflammatory effects.
